Riches I hold in light esteem,
And Love I laugh to scorn;
And lust of fame was but a dream,
That vanished with the morn:
And if I pray, the only prayer
That moves my lips for me
Is, Leave the heart that now I bear
And give me liberty!
Yea, as my swift days near their goal,
Tis all that I implore;
In life and death a chainless soul,
With courage to endure.
